Championship is a great level to be at for first 4 years of career (if you start at 18). Unless the kid is just extraordinary, he should stay in championship. Playing time is the most important thing in the beginning of a career. Just look at Joe Gyau.

Both Joe Gyau and Hurzeler are killing it for Hoffenheim 2. It's only a matter of time before both break into Hoffenheims first team. Still have high hopes for Joe. He is only 21 years old.

The two of them had the two goals in Hoffenheim II's win today. Looking pretty impressive this far.

Holmes should stay in the Championship for another year after this season. Playing time is KEY for a developing young player such as Holmes, you don't just move to the EPL because there is interest, just look at Jozy.........

I don't concern myself with 2nd team goals given quality of opponents. His performances at St. Pauli showed enormous weaknesses in his game.

OF course he some weaknesses. He is 21 years old. He had some very good games for St. Pauli as wells as some poor ones. Which happens with most young players.

New feature on Holmes. Hopefully there is a lot for you to dig into here.

This kid looks extremely promising. Too bad he wasn't on the last U20 team.

Duane Holmes seizes the moment at Huddersfield

Thoughts?

I love it when coaches and club officials make remarks about players heights. You vcan tell that that remark put a whole lot of fuel on the fire for Holmes.

The Attacking talent the 2018 USMNT cycle will have is going to be ridiculous. Nagbe, Zardes, Lletget, Holmes, Johannsson, Altidore, Pontius, Shea, Gil, Wood, Agudelo and the list of talented players will be growing every year.

I thought Lletget was more of a defensive-minded midfielder for West Ham? I'm sure you know better but out of curiosity what is his position?

He is an attacking CM. And has played mostly as the CAM for West Ham's U-21 team. He also played as the attacking CM for West Ham in pre-season.

I think usa will be about 50 deep in attacking players for 2018... Others to keep in mind, Pfeffer, Cannouse, Gyau, Gaitan, Hoyos brothers, Hurzeler, Parker, Maki tall,(Most likely switches), Alonso, Cuevas, Arriola, Rubin, Pelosi, romain gall, green ext... And many many more youngsters that will certainly Explode on the scene in the next 5 years.. The pool for the mnt will certainly exceed 100 players in 2018 and all will have a shot at the WC..

While it is worth keeping an eye on all players, the ones that are seeing first team action are just in a different class.

The jump between reserve soccer and first team soccer is HUGE. Most players don't make that jump.

Young players like Arriola, Holmes, Gil, O'Neill, Packwood (if he returns fully), are just on another level after proving they can compete well after making the first team jump.

The other guys like Gall, Cuevas, Joya, Stanko, Rubin, Canouse, Gaitan, Pfeffer etc... they haven't made that jump yet and you can't tell how they will project.
